- Pain Medicine
Anesthesiologists are physicians who are trained to administer anesthetics, which are medicines used to block nerve sensation. Anesthesia can be either local to one specific part of a body, like a tooth, or regional to block feeling to a larger portion of the body, such as during an epidural for child birth. It can also be more general to block sensation to the entire body, resulting in unconsciousness.
Anesthesiologists assist in surgery by determining how much anesthesia is necessary and by monitoring the patient's level of responsiveness and vital signs throughout the procedure. The anesthesia specialist will also bring the patient out of anesthesia and then continue to monitor his or her vital signs post-operation.
Besides assisting in surgeries, anesthesiologists may also treat patients suffering from chronic pain.

I have been going to Dr. Hess for almost 10 years now. It seemed like when I was a new patient he really cared about my chronic situation. Now, it seems like I am just an old patient and I am just going to remain this way, so the compassion isn't there anymore. It's very disheartening and makes the depression worse. Plus the front office is so unprofessional for a doctor's office. The women in their are whispering and laughing , they are rude on the phone. I think it might be time to move on.
